likes to write things down and is a firm believer in the John Lennon quote,"If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliché that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal." Her ninth young adult book, JUST LIKE YOU SAID IT WOULD BE, is available now and is full of movie references and giddy love for Dublin, Ireland. She'll make her middle grade debut with Cormorant's Dancing Cat Books imprint in fall, 2017.
The Ex Reprise: It's something unpredictable but in the end it's right...
We had to hit the CNE one last time to make the most of the last day in August —and because we'd previously missed daredevil Joseph D. Bauer's Wheel of Thrills act, which, let me tell you, is really something to see. If you're going to the Ex this weekend before it closes make sure to catch his act.
and munch on some 'food' that would make your dentist cringe.
Here's Joseph D. Bauer walking and running (sometimes skipping rope and blindfolded!) inside and outside of a 45 foot long wheel that rotates 360 degrees on a beam. No harness! Just an impeccable sense of balance. Truly amazing.
Like hanging out at the Ex on the last day of August isn't nostalgia-inducing enough (summer, please don't leave us!) on its own, some band just off the midway was playing the Green Day tune Time of Your Life as we were on our way out.
